Hip & Knee Replacement
Joint replacement surgery, also known as arthroplasty, is when an arthritic or damaged joint is removed and replaced with an artificial joint. Joint replacement is becoming more common, and each year orthopaedic surgeons perform thousands of joint replacement surgeries.
Joint replacement has been identified to be one of the most rewarding surgeries performed. If other surgical and medical modalities fail, a replaced joint can return a patient to near normal function. Research has shown that even if you are older, joint replacement can help you move around and feel better.
Hip and knee replacements are the most common, due to the fact that they are large weight bearing joints.
The Joint Center at Orthopaedic Associates of St. Augustine is the most highly advanced in the area. Ranging from a partial knee and hip replacements to computer-navigated total replacements; we cater the treatment to the individual patient and specific replacement required. Minimally invasive surgery and select “high-end” options are often used to decrease surgical time and facilitate a rapid recovery.
